After two years of fighting out in court, Blade star Wesley Snipes has been convicted as guilty of not filing his tax returns and will serve his 3 year prison sentence today!
Wesley's lawyers have tried everything to get Wesley off the tax evasion charges, they even filed an emergency motion on Wednesday asking for a new trial after a jury member spoke out and said that the jurors all thought Wesley was guilty from the start of his trial and now his lawyers are hoping to prove this means he didn't have a fair trial. The judge is reviewing the emergency request, but that doesn't mean Wesley is getting out of going to prison. He handed himself in to authorities last night and will be taken to his Pennsylvania prison today. (Source:Wenn)

Actor Wesley Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion by a judge yesterday afternoon. The government claims that Snipes owes a total of $2.7 million in back taxes (though Snipes' attorney argued it was $228,000) and the three-year sentence was the maximum he could get. Letters written by Denzel Washington and Woody Harrelson were written in Snipes' defense but to no avail; this should serve as a reminder for all Hollywood stars that everyone has to pay their taxes!
